What qualifies a restaurant as a must-eat?
This list is unofficial dining critic, Teniesha Biagas’ (lol) answer to that question. They are what she believes to be the best local restaurants in a range of categories, from Black-owned, Mexican, pizzerias and Mediterranean. One thing in common is the authenticity of each restaurant.
617 Piety St, New Orleans, LA 70117
Pizza has to be cheesy, just the right amount of sauce and most importantly delicious. This place hits the spot every time.
Acme Oyster House
724 Iberville Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
The best chargrilled oysters in New Orleans! Some like the other place known for chargrilled oysters, but this is my favorite. I’ll even wait in line too!
2301 Orleans Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119
When the cook is 94 years young and still in the kitchen you have to see it for yourself. You’ll quickly fall in love with the chicken and peach cobbler and of course Mrs. Leah!
165 Roosevelt Way, New Orleans, LA 70112
The best for your buck Mediterranean food you’ll taste in New Orleans.
1500 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70116
It’s a New Orleans favorite. If you’ve never had their buffet, you’re missing out.
930 Tchoupitoulas St, New Orleans, LA 70130
Cochon Butcher hands down has the best mac and cheese. Like the best I’ve ever tasted, anywhere.
Address: 1719 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd, New Orleans, LA 70113
Not only is the food tasty, but Casa Borrega is one of the only places where you can get a margarita made from Agave nectar and not from a margarita mix. It’s the real deal.
